Brisbane, it’s your turn.
Qantas will now fly Brisbane to Los Angeles on one of the airline’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners from 1 September 2018. Fares are on sale from today.
The daily route, which will go on to operate the Los Angeles to New York connection, will also be complemented by three Boeing 747 flights each week to initially meet demand for the popular trip. Once the final Dreamliners are delivered later in the year, they will replace the 747 planes.
Four of the eight Dreamliners, all of which should be delivered by the end of 2018, will be based in Brisbane. The others are based in Melbourne, servicing the Melbourne to Los Angeles, Melbourne to San Francisco and Melbourne to London (via Perth) route.
The Qantas Dreamliner has 236 seats across three cabins – a Business Class dubbed “mini First Class” by some travellers; an enhanced Premium Economy with larger entertainment screens and seats with an improved recline function; and an Economy cabin featuring chairs with an extra 2.54 centimetres of seat pitch compared to those in an A380.
No matter which cabin you travel in, the fleet of Qantas Dreamliners is set to revolutionise the flying experience thanks to improved storage, device-charging outlets, new technology that reduces turbulence and self-service bars.
All that’s left is to hope for some serious celeb-spotting on your way to La La Land.
